Well I'm pretty feed up with my Aveov HV setup. I was flying my Eolo this weekend and the Motor seized! It had that burnt electric smell. I know I over heated it but I wasn't beating it up just flying around.

Here is my setup. Aveox 27/39/1.5, 14t pinon, CC Phx 45, TP 6s 2100mAh Gen 2.

I have the throttle High ATV at 65% on my 9Z WCII. The CC Phx 45 is in Fixed throttle mode with the throttle curves approx 100, 95, 90, 95, 100 in Idle up using firmware 1.02.

The Motor has always been to hot to touch after landing. I thought the advantage of the HV set up was less heat?

So Are there any other Motor choices that can take advantage of the batteries I already have?

Thanks,

John

doesn't sound good. Did you have a heat sink and good ventilation?

I ran some tests with 5s and I will say that the motor did much better with this setup. It had a little more power then the C40-8L and a lot less bogging compared at full thottle. I think that 6s is pushing the limits and 4s or 5s is better in terms of heat.

I have been doing some testing and came up with a setup that has as much power as the Aveox 6s setup but has more run time.

Kontronik Twist-33
TP-G2(new lite cells)-4000 4s2p Battery
CC Phoenix 35 w/SBEC
14t pinion

This runs cooler than the Aveox and runs about 50% longer.
The power to weight is only slightly less that the Aveox 6s but it feels just as powerful in flight.
The P-35 seams to work well but a Jazz ESC would probably be better and would not require a SBEC.

I really wish others would give this a try and give us their opinion.

To answer rcaddition's question; yes on both accounts. I have about 5 1/2 inch/10 mm holes in the front of the canopy. After looking at others canopy ventilation I think I need more holes :-( I am using two MPI clamshell style heatsinks. Are there better one out there? I am not using any heat transfer grease under the heatsinks but will get some at Radioshack and see if this make a difference.

Ben-T-Spindle: I'll keep your suggestion in mind, for now I would like to find a solution that takes advantage of the 6s lipolys I have since I have about $300 in batteries.

Thank you guys,
John

I haven't really had a chance to get out and fly my new hv setup. but I hover in front of the house quite often to test everything out. With 6s and canopy off max temps at the motor are 120-140 degrees(with kontronik heatsink & heat transfer paste). with the large holes I have cut into my canopy I can hover facing a descent wind flow and still maintain these temps. Now if the canopy is on and there's not even so much as a breeze then the motor temps climb to 170-180 degrees f. which is a no no from what I understand. What I've learn from this is that you need alot of ventilation in the canopy for forward flight to keep the motor cool. If all your doing is hover practice then fly with the canopy off.
Tests with 5s packs showed better performance then the Hacker C40-8L and temps never got over 145 degrees with canopy on and a good 10min hover.
So if your running 6s then you need to keep moving or hover canopy off.
